Southborough's Bravest

September 15, 2007 - Members of the Southborough Fire Department and instructors pose at the end of today's drill.

Photos from the Southborough Fire Drill

September 15, 2007 - Southborough Firefighters had an opportunity to do an all day drill on a house donated by Paul, Mary Ellen and Connie Whitman of Bryden Road today.  The Firefighters were drilled by MA Fire Academy instructor Joseph Nedder, Jr. Top photo firefighters "rescue" one of their own from the second floor of the split level home.  Below Firefighters open up to vent the roof.  Venting a roof will allow toxic gases and built up heat to escape.  This increases visibility for firefighters in interior operations.   Venting also can let a fire department know if the fire has spread to attic or hidden areas.

Smoke Showing

During the training, instructors used simulated heat and smoke machines to "imitate" a real life fire situation. As the Southborough Fire Department photographer I was allowed into the drill building to document how conditions can deteriorate enough so that the human eye has trouble distinguishing objects and negotiating travel within the building becomes nearly impossible. Various ways firefighters try to overcome this obstacle are by staying low and feeling your way along a wall, keeping touch with the person ahead of you and by use of the thermal imager camera.  The camera to the left was photographed shortly after entering the building. The photo below shows how much conditions had worsened in the short time period I was in the building.

A Walk through the Past

Tour stop # 3 St. Mark’s Church and Burnett Cemetery  September 15, 2007 - Joseph Burnett was the primary mover for the Episcopal Church in Southborough. In March of 1853 a declaration of trust established the first Episcopal Church in Southborough and services were to be in private homes until a chapel could be built.

Services were held regularly in different locations but mostly the Town Hall, Burnett’s home and Pilgrim Church. When the Stone Shop on the Burnett estate became available in 1860, the upper floor was fitted up as a small chapel becoming the town’s first Episcopal Church. It was then announced that Alexander Esty had been asked to draw up plans for a permanent building. The cornerstone was laid on August 15, 1862 and on June 16, 1863 the stone church was consecrated.

By 1867 a choir was established. This was an all-male activity since women were not permitted up in the sanctuary. This practice was discontinued in 1893 when it was voted women could be full members of the Church.

The congregation grew and in 1889 the Church was extended, the first of four expansions between 1880 and 1910 including the bell tower in 1890. In 1906 the sanctuary was renovated and expanded in memory of Joseph and Josephine Burnett. The easternmost few feet encroached on town land and Burnett made a contribution to the town to settle the dispute.

In the rear of St. Mark’s Church is the Burnett family cemetery. This is a private cemetery where lies Joseph Burnett and many of his family members and descendants. Many of those resting here have served our nation, state and town in various capacities during their lifetimes. (The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill".)

A Walk through the Past

Tour stop # 2 Town Pound  September 14, 2007 - The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill". Every early town had a pound.  These were necessary because many animals grazed freely on the Common land and strays frequently trespassed.  Eventually farmers were abele to build stone fences to keep the cattle in but animals would always escape so each town had a pound where these strays were kept until reclaimed. In order to reclaim his animal, the owner had to pay a fine and if the animal was not claimed it was sold and half the proceeds went to the town and half to the person who impounded it.

According to "Fences of Stone" the Southborough pound was recorded in different locations.  In 1735 "the Selectmen voted many improvements.  The school was completed, located alongside the Pound and Noon House, west of Timothy Brigham's land."  This would indicate the Pound was there before 1735, one of the town's early landmarks.  This was north of Main Street and below the Burial Ground.  The map indicates that this location was changed slightly in 1773 moving slightly north and in 1797, it moved to its present location, west of the Meeting House.

It fell into disrepair and was rebuilt as a project of the Southborough Rotary Club and dedicated as a memorial garden for Veterans' and Citizens' on September 30, 1967 by Lt. Governor Francis W. Sargent.

Container Gardening

September 14, 2007 - Container gardening was brought to the Southborough Senior center this gorgeous morning by Tina Bemis.  Several visitors to the center participated in the program and were rewarded with beautiful plantings.

The Triangle of Southborough

September 14, 2007 - As the gateway into Southborough from the south, the Cordaville Triangle Committee would love to see this parcel be developed in a sensitive way to the neighborhood.  The parcel was deeded to the Town from the MBTA as a result of placement of the MBTA parking lot for the commuter rail station on the former Cordaville Woolen Mill property.  The committee has a goal to see the one-third acre parcel to beautify the tract; attract residents and visitors who can use the area as a small public park; to commemorate the area's significant industrial history, and to provide a physical buffer from surrounding vehicular traffic.  The committee has proposed to plant new native trees and shrubs, provide walkways and seating areas throughout the park and to place the Cordaville Woolen Factory's bell in a prominent location in the park, accompanied by a depiction of the former appearance of the historic mill village of Cordaville on an engraved map.  The area of Cordaville was once known for the Cordaville Woolen Factory, formerly located southwest of the Cordaville Triangle and was the town's largest factory in the 19th century.   The factory was the center of a small self-sustaining mill village named Cordaville, surrounded by workers' housing built by the original mill owner.  Although few physical remains of the industrial enterprise survive, the sturdy 19th century worker's houses anchor the Cordaville Triangle to the west.

The Smartest Card is @ your library®: Get it, use it at Southborough Public Library

 

September 13, 2007 - September is Library Card Sign-up Month and the Southborough Public Library wants to make sure that your child is among the two-thirds of Americans that carry the smartest card of all – a library card. 

Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning. 

“A library card has always been the most important school supply of all,” says

Lisa Taranto, Children’s Librarian.  “Kids can come to the library to get homework help and learn about the wealth of information that is easily searched on our online databases for accurate authoritative and up to date information.  They can check out books, but they can also check out free music, DVDs and use the Internet to make after school life a little more fun.  There are many special programs offered for the community’s enrichment, as well as meeting rooms available to reserve.  There’s a lot happening at the Southborough Public Library.”

A recent study by the American Library Association also showed that families use libraries to spend time together.  Forty-four percent of survey respondents report taking their children to the library for this reason. 

 For more information on how you can sign up for your library card, visit the Southborough Public Library at 25 Main Street, call 508-485-5031 or see the library’s Web site at http://www.southboroughtown.com/library.htm.

A Walk through the Past

September 13, 2007 - The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill".

#1 stop. The Lyscom apple Tree.  This tree is one of the few remaining from the Historical Society project in 1977 to celebrate the town's 250th anniversary.  The Lyscom apple had been rescued from extinction through a project of the Worcester County Horticultural Society.  Scions of many old varieties were grafted onto rootstock in an experimental orchard in North Grafton belonging to S. Lothrop Davenport.  The last recorded Lyscom Apple Tree in Southborough was about 1917 with Miss Mary Finn recalling a lone tree on Flagg Road.  The trees disappeared through lack of care and disease and a W. P. A. program to eradicate old trees thought to harbor disease. The Society was referred to James Mistark of Grafton, senior member of the Orchard Committee and he agreed to graft 10 scions in 1974, our order being increased to 30 later, so that residents could obtain trees in addition to those for the town. 

The originator of the Lyscom apple variety, according to Deacon Peter Fay papers, which covered the time from his early childhood up to 1888, was Samuel Lyscom.  Lyscom was a resident at the time of the town's incorporation in 1727 and he, in fact, signed the petition to set the town off from Marlborough.  During Lyscom's lifetime he held every office in town and eventually became a judge.  he was Southborough's second Representative under the Colonial government.

Lyscom married twice, Mary his first wife died in 1733 and Hannah died six months after Samuel's own death on May 18, 1755.  He had ten children, his oldest surviving son John was born in 1727, the year of the town's incorporation.  John inherited his property together with his stepmother, Hannah.  On April 4, 1772 a deed recorded the sale of 21 acres with house to Josiah Fay and Lyscom left town. (This information is taken from the Walk Through the Past booklet for the self-guided walk).

Patriot Day, 2007
Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

September 11, 2001, was a defining moment in American history. On that terrible day, our Nation saw the face of evil as 19 men barbarously attacked us and wantonly murdered people of many races, nationalities, and creeds. On Patriot Day, we remember the innocent victims, and we pay tribute to the valiant firefighters, police officers, emergency personnel, and ordinary citizens who risked their lives so others might live.

After the attacks on 9/11, America resolved that we would go on the offense against our enemies, and we would not distinguish between the terrorists and those who harbor and support them. All Americans honor the selfless men and women of our Armed Forces, the dedicated members of our public safety, law enforcement, and intelligence communities, and the thousands of others who work hard each day to protect our country, secure our liberty, and prevent future attacks.

The spirit of our people is the source of America's strength, and 6 years ago, Americans came to the aid of neighbors in need. On Patriot Day, we pray for those who died and for their families. We volunteer to help others and demonstrate the continuing compassion of our citizens. On this solemn occasion, we rededicate ourselves to laying the foundation of peace with confidence in our mission and our free way of life.

By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 11, 2007, as Patriot Day. I call upon the Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff on Patriot Day. I also call upon the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and remembrance services, to display the flag at half-staff from their homes on that day, and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-second.

GEORGE W. BUSH

Looking as if they were Porcupine Eggs

September 9, 2007 - Actually these happen to be the fruit of the American Chestnut Tree.  The sharp spiny fruits crack open to reveal the nut.  The American Chestnut Tree had been a very important hardwood tree and was used for many purposes until the Chestnut blight that attacked the bark via a fungus in the early part of the last century nearly made the tree extinct.  There are survivors but very few attain the massive size of the long gone trees.  Before the blight American Chestnut Trees could surpass one hundred feet in height.
